    Tee, my heart is broken. You were a friend, a mentor, and a loyal service member. The stories we shared, the experiences we went through, the laughs and the sympathy for our fellow soldiers we lost. I remember the guidance that you gave me before I left for Iraq, and I survived on it. Look over us Tee, I know that you are there with Frank Tolson, Leo Miller and Bobby Banfield. I will look for you when my time comes to pass that bridge. You will be soon missed.
